netanyahu said that he is quote absolutely convinced that president obama is determined to keep a nuclear weapon out of iran, how important was that for israeli audiences to hear? as that that's very important, you're exactly right. the president said before he is not bluffing. joe biden repeated it to apac just two weeks ago. the president is not bluffing, he is deadly serious about that. policy is not containment. it is absolutely contention and he will tell the israeli people in his speech tomorrow and he said it today that he has israelis back. and also the promise of this new long-term military relationship that will go beyond 2017. the other thing is the israelis wanted him to be here physically. to get an emotional sense of how vulnerable they are geographically and when the president opened remarks by saying, in flying this there, i saw that you measure your security by minutes and by miles. i'm paraphrasing, but that basically what he said. that the commitment that george w. bush got before he was president flying by helicopter by ariel sharon. that's the size of israel a

goal, more pressing concerns for the obama white house are the threats from iran and the effect of the relentless bloodshed in syria. we want to begin with some analysis about the president's trip this morning with our chief foreign correspondent richard engel back from the region. he is in new york this morning. i have david brooks of "the new york times" and e.j. dionne with me in washington. richard, let me start with you. the president called on israel to renew efforts to the creation of a palestinian state. he helped restore the israeli/turkish relationship. so what else do you think he can return with that he can actually build upon? >> reporter: well, i think the reconciliation between turkey and israel is something that's very important because i wouldn't see the chances right now of an israeli/palestinian reconciliation but i do think the middle east recognizes that there are urgent regional matters as syria implodes that the region needs to have some sort of summit and turkey is going to play a big part of that. so i think coming out of this, you're going to see istanbul emer

because of the issue of iran and syria. no doubt, the obama white house will have to be dealing with. >> he is back wanting to deal with domestic issues including gun control. after sandy hook we all understood there was a narrow window to get change, meaningful change in terms of gun laws. what has happened now in terms of the assault weapons ban, and where all this goes? >> well, the question is whether the moment is effectively lost. i think that's a real question inside the white house among democrats and gun control supporters. the assault weapons ban will get a vote, but it's not going to pass. the big focus is on background checks, and the big political focus is not going away. i sat down with new york city mayor michael bloomberg who talked about his own big push to spend money to target lawmakers. he has taken names based on how they vote on the assault weapons ban. >> i think i have a responsibility, and i think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities to try to make this country safer for our families and for each other. we've spent $12 million on running ads in t

shows us there is a reality beyond the vision of piece. meanwhile, in the west bank president obama met with president ab pass this morning and -- abbas this morning and stressed his commitment to the formation of a palestinian state. in a speech to jerusalem today, he addressed the all-important issue of iran's rogue nuclear program. >> i've made the position of the united states of america clear: iran must not get a nuclear weapon. this is not a danger that can be contained, and as president i've said all options are on the table for achieving our objectives. america will do what we must to prevent a nuclear-armed iran.

mending on this trip. i think that president obama comes with two messages, one, make more concessions to the palestinians, and two, don't even think about attacking iran's nuclear weapons program. so, if people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have, i think that obama's 10% approval rating in israel would go even lower. >> greta: ambassador, thank you. always nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: okay. now to roger ailes, the man who created and launched fox news in 1996 and has been ever since. a new book gives readers an upclose look at the fox news president. and the author of "roger ailes off camera", nice to talk to you. >> nice to talk to you, too. tell me, when did you first begin talking to roger ailes about this book? >> i talked to roger, i guess in the summer of 2011. >> greta: all right. prior to 2011, i assume that he had some sort of thoughts about what you would be learning when you began the book. did anything surprise you diagnose your investigation and your reporting? >> oh, a lot of things surprised m

in occupying iran, and i don't think the obama administration wants to do so. but it seems that the strategy, if there is one, is to make some kind of surgical strike to knock out the iranian nuclear capacity. and i'm just curious, is that possible? or is that another example of faith-based strategy? and for the general if -- in particular in that, you know, you have raised the importance of understanding how the opponent is going to respond, how -- what is the likely response of the iranians to what is, what we hope to be a surge call strike such as the -- surgical strike such as the israelis delivered on iraq or syria? >> okay, i think we've got it. go ahead. >> why don't i deal with iraq and iran, then there's another issue which i want to address. on iraq the question's very simple, who bears responsibility? i think the answer's very obvious, we do. we started the war. the iraqis didn't attack us. we went in. some may feel for legitimate reasons, others may feel for dubious reasons, some, like myself, feel for fraudulent reasons. but in any case, the fact is we started it, so we

screwdriver turns away. president obama has been very careful. he has only said he would not allow iran to get a nuclear weapon. and it sounds like they're splitting hairses but they're talking about two different things. if the red line for the israelis is a capability the iranians may be close to that. if it's a weapon it may be pretty far from that . >> rose: let's north korea and the new secretary of defense saying we want to have the capacity to stop the north koreans if they decide to make an attack on the united states. do we have that technology now? >> what we have no is about 30 anti-missile batteries set up n alaska just south of fair banks and in california. and their success rate is pretty limited, charlie. when they are tested against dummy warheads, they hit about a little over 350% of those -- 50% under those ideal conditions. i would not call this a fabulous deternal. at the same time by bolstering it adding 14 over the next few years, they're trying to signal to the north koreans that the u.s. is serious about this but more importantly signal to the chinese that unless th

would take over a year for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. >> chris: how do you think president obama is handling the threats from north core are rhea and from iran and i think it is only fair to point out both of which continue their nuclear buildup under president bush? >> first of all, in north korea i think after ten years of trying to experiment with sanctions that are loosened in the aftermath when north korea agrees to do something we learned painfully that north korea never does what it says it is going to do. this is a tough thing to deal with. part self-made. the united states has a policy calling for reunification of both north and south korea. china doesn't want them reunified because it doesn't want a capitalist democracy on its border and the south koreans don't want reunification either. prosperous country. 25 million people in the north and one of the most abject states of poverty one can imagine. until we sort of forego a unification we are not going to necessarily get the cooperation we need from china. may

it's a good thing. let's talk about iran. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or launch one. you recently visited north korea. kim jong-un. what do you make of their aspirations towards their nuclear program, and what it means for us here in the u.s.? >> well i've been to north korea many times, but you still can't figure out what's going on with the new leader. the bad side is that he's making a lot of negative, provocative statements. the north koreans going out there and being very threatening. i think it makes sense for secretary hagel to say we're prepared. we're going to shift some of those interceptors to north korea. away from building in towards and against russia, which makes sense, which may help our american-russian relationship which is key in what we're trying to do with sanctions with iran. i think all in all, it makes sense with what the new secreta
